I have a few ADFS 3.0 Servers with SQL database server.
I would like to upgrade, my plan is to keep using the same server name and IP address.
Can I just rename the old server - shutdown the server without uninstalling the ADFS service. just in case if I need to recover?
or does this cause an issue while adding a new server with the same name into the ADFS Farm?
I did not face such scenario. As i can see ADFS works on DNS name resolution, and you are keeping the same name so it should not create the problem.
note these point.
# make sure only one server up at a time, else you will face IP conflict issue.
# you have to rejoin the server to domain again as AD trust will removed will old server as long as you will add new server with same name.
# safer side you can use Remove-AdfsFarmNode command to add/remove servers in farm.
Hope it will help you.
